Climate Change

Small islands, whether located in the tropics or higher latitudes, have characteristics which make them especially vulnerable to the effects of climate change, sea-level rise, and extreme events (very high confidence) ♦  Sea-level rise is expected to exacerbate inundation, storm surge, erosion and other coastal hazards, thus threatening vital infrastructure, settlements and facilities that support the livelihood of island communities (very high confidence). ♦  There is strong evidence that under most climate change scenarios, water resources in small islands are likely to be seriously compromised (very high confidence). ♦  It is very likely that subsistence and commercial agriculture on small islands will be adversely affected by climate change (high confidence).

Who ‘owns’ the carbon in the forest? This is a question of great importance for all developing countries preparing to engage with REDD+, including Solomon Islands. Land in Solomon Islands is of central importance to the cultural and economic security of customary landowning communities. Consequently, the right to control forest carbon and the right to enjoy the economic benefits that may flow from this under REDD+ are also of critical importance to Solomon Islanders.
